Review: My field got these in. we were promissed by the rep that they were "high quality paint at an affordable price..

Ok well.. we got some nice combinations in. solid orange (2 cases) yellow/green shelled (2 cases) and red/yello (2 cases)
firing the dual colored shelled paint was fine.. a noticable seam, other than that, no flat spots or dimples. It flew straight, didnt arc, there wasn't an over-abundance of oil on the balls. Tested out of an intimidator, a 2k2 lcd angel rental markers (spyder clones) and some BKOs.
Another BKO owner showed up.. He purchased a case of the solid orange Circuits..He would fire 3 shots then *blop*(goop in the barrel) then every 2nd/3rd shot after was an explosion inside the barrel. Ok. So we check the ball detents.. The PDS system. Clean the eyes.. replace the detents.. Same thing over again. 3 shots the *blop* (more goop in the barrel) Ok. We replace his barrel with a .693 barrel (the biggest my empire goes up to) clean everything up.. Same thing happens Again!
Clean everything out.. try some out of the "other" solid orange case.. Same scenario all over again.. BTW. During the installation of the .693 barrel we tested for ball/barrel matching .. the ball fell directly thru the barrel. No resistance.
I gave the guy half a pod of some "INK'd" i had left over from last weekend.. He shot some ropes at the chrono.. No problem.. No blops no chops..
A friend of his gave him another pod of the green/yellows.. he shot strings of paint.. no problems.
We replaced the case he purchased with some dual/shelled paint and he played the rest of the day. No more problems.
Conclusion: No way i'd tell anyone to buy this paint.. 2 separate cases having the same problem .. Thats just horrible quality control. I think, after reading the last 2 reviews, i know what happened. One got solid paints one got dual colored.
I would not reccomend this product to anyone.

One of the colors I tested was a orange shell-pink fill. The other was yellow/red-yellow fill. The yellow/red did shoot a little better than the orange, but not much.
